Bob’s Boulders

DisclaimerClimbing is dangerous. I am not responsible if you hurt yourself by using the information in this guide. To the best of my ability I have tried to make this a safe spot to climb, but not all circumstances can be avoided.

Please message me for the location of this boulder and I will gladly show you. It is on private property so I will not be publicly posting the location. It is within 10 minutes of Parry Sound and a 500 meter trail in has been made (not by climbers).

If you have grade feedback/ agree with the grades let me know. Contact me Daniel Hefford on Facebook, or message Parry Sound Climbing on Facebook or the comments section at the bottom of the page.

Please respect other climbers. The bottom gets quite muddy so please wipe off your shoes before every climb. I would suggest at least 2 crash pads. The circles are the starting hand holds. The F’s are where to start your feet.
